WHAT TO WEAR: A Formal Affair

As college students we love any opportunity to get all dressed up, put on our best heels, and fix our hair and makeup to perfection. Formal season is upon us and there is nothing better than finding a dress that you not only feel beautiful in, but comfortable too.

This Fashionista styled her absolute favorite little black dress. The high neck, open back and fit and flare style scream classy. The first thing she noticed about the dress was how comfortable it was. The fit and flare adds a flirty touch but leaves room for a food baby. This dress was purchased from Bloomingdales and was under $100!

Her shoes add the perfect touch. If it were myself, I would go for a black pointed toe heel, but this Fashionista is full of spunk and pizazz which makes these shoes perfect for her outfit. They add the perfect pop of color and the glitter makes them stand out. These shoes were purchased from Urban Outfitters, also under $100.

As for jewelry, she decided to keep it simple. The beaded bracelets and rings are part of her every day jewelry. Unfortunately, the beaded bracelets are from a boutique in India but you could find similar items in small boutiques in your hometown or on Etsy. Her rings were also from a small boutique in her hometown.

She kept her makeup natural, fresh faced and glowy. The thick winged eyeliner adds some detail and her bright pink matte liquid lipstick is the perfect touch. For her lips she chose used Kylie Cosmetics Posie K lip liner and liquid lipstick.

The key to any formal event is feeling absolutely beautiful, but comfortable at the same time. Wear something that puts all eyes on you, but lets you dance the night away.
